Commander Strikeher’s #CBR Review #40: Super Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt & Stephen J. Dubner
I listened to this book so long ago that I don’t really remember much of it. If you loved Freakonomics, then you will love Super Freakonomics. Read this if you love the Freakonomics Podcast. I love this kind of pop-sciencey stuff, especially in Audio form. It is great to listen to while doing the dishes or folding the laundry.
Once again Levitt and Dubner use economics to ask intriguing questions. How effective are car seats? Is it more effective for a prostitute to have a pimp or not? Is drunk walking really safer than drunk driving? The authors manage to make economics interesting, and these books are highly entertaining.
